The rapper from Orlando, Florida, has already released an album and a mini-album and now comes this latest, issued through HisStory Music Group. Many of the rhyming feats and the word-association plays are really smart ("I be walking on a new wave/I ain't need a surf board nah/Boy we sharp with the word-play/That's why we call that word a sword yeah/Money longer I ain't talking bout a Honda but we all on one accord, yeah/Blessings falling from the sky/I ain't gotta work for it. . ."). The poet in me is jealous. Step aside John Cooper Clark, there's new punk-performance poetry in town! As well as being a performer, Dee is also 'Fight Club''s music producer. And good he is too, with some wonderfully inventive arrangements. His only miss-steps are the so-called inflight "announcements." After a few listens I was wishing there was an automatic self-destruct for these irritating, supposedly-smart track intros. But apart from that, this is an impressive set.
